Canada Freight Train

A massive amount of freight goes between the East and West coasts of Canada.

This is what 250,000 tonnes looks like at 35mph at 2 metres. (See, you can mix metric and imperial measurements – we do it all the time!).

There are only 2 main lines, when the freight trains come through – the passenger stuff waits.

This monster held up our train in Bannf!
